Subject: Not Boring!
These lectures were given over 100 years ago. I read the book when I was 12 years old, and always remembered that no more than 3 bubbles will meet at one point.

Yes, it's dated, the illustrations are dated, but bubbles (and waaaay more!) never change.

A better review from the University of Houston's College of Engineering:
